The Middle East in Election 2004: The Accountability Acts


Published 2004


The new Syrian and Saudi Accountability Acts represent unique Congressional forays into the executive branch's traditional authority over US foreign affairs. What is the potential long-term diplomatic and economic impact of accountability acts on the United States and its relations with the international community? What evidence and justifications underlie the acts? How are American national interests served? Which lobbies and interest groups seek these acts? As the U.S. Congress sets preconditions for relations with Middle East nations based on violations of international laws and resolutions, should a regional balance be sought in order to increase US credibility? Should relations with Israel also be subject to an accountability act?

The program is in RealVideo and is divided by speaker:

* H.E. Imad Moustapha, Syrian Ambassador (23:14)
* Eugene Bird, CNI President (11:56)
* Dr. E. Faye Williams, Civic leader (4:13)
* Grant Smith, Research Director, Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) (17:09)
* Dr. Stephen Zunes, Associate Professor, San Francisco State University (17:16)
* Amb. Robert Keeley, Former U.S. Ambassador (10:26)

Recorded March 17, 2004, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
